Blue Jays fan’s wild reaction after catching a bat that flies into the crowd

Big League Stew

"This is my bat now and NOBODY is taking it from me." That's what I imagine this Toronto Blue Jays fan is thinking when he caught a bat that flew into the stands. Just look at that reaction. Wow. You don't want to meet this guy in the beer line.

The bat belongs to Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who waved at an R.A. Dickey knuckleball during the first inning of Tuesday night's opener for both teams.

Here it is in gif form, if you prefer.

The good news, for all of us, is that the bat-yielding Jays fan did give the bat back. But the Blue Jays might be wise to hire his dude to scare opposing teams all season long.

Baseball season is back. Don't miss anything.
